3. Replace telephone lines and ensure that the telephone lines are not
faulty.
After a broadband device is installed, does Internet access degrade call
quality or do telephone calls lower the Internet access rate?
No. The HG658c uses the frequency division multiplexing (FDM) and splitter
technologies to separate voice signals from data signals. Although these two
types of signals are transmitted through one telephone line, they are carried
by different frequency bands. Therefore, they do not interfere with each
other. In this case, you can make telephone calls and access the Internet at
the same time, without degrading call quality or lowering the Internet access
rate.
